You're more than welcome, Karen. XO For all others who many need help - please let us try to help. Go to our Westchester Reunion FB event page and share! Or, let me share for you if you don't have FB or are timid to share. If you have time & resources to help our classmates, thank you. And if not, I'm fully certain that prayers, encouraging words, good thoughts are all welcome!
While I have you "on the line," a reunion comment. I've been asked if I plan to go to any of our classmate-owned restaurants over our reunion weekend - YES! All of them! I'm traveling in from Central Texas & helping to put on two events, so I'm having to be creative to work them in, but will definitely do!
I'll be coming in on Thursday to make Hyatt "my office" for a few days. So, I plan to make dinner reservations at Chef Greg Martin's Bistro Menil on Thursday, September 28 @ 7 PM. I'd love it if I could get a few to join me who may live or work near downtown.
Friday, September 29th is our Saint Arnold's happy hour from 4:30-7! And then our "after the party party" will begin at 8 PM at Damian Seaback's Clay's Restaurant which suffered flooding, but will be back up and running within the week! Damian spun magic & did what I tried & never accomplished - to get Chip Castro & Paul Johnson to play! I'm going to UBER out there & back to hotel!
And then, on Saturday AM @ 11 AM, I am going to brunch at Chef John Sheely's Lowbrows. We have a reservation & it's growing! Come join us! (John, get the coffee brewing. I'm gonna need fuel from a good breakfast & a whole lot of coffee by then!)
And then, of course, our big event at Hyatt on Saturday evening! Forget the heels. Wear comfy shoes. We aren't putting the dance music on till 10:30 PM to allow lots and lots of time to visit. And then. I WILL make you dance with me. 40 years. We've earned it.
Here's my email if you would like jump in on reservations either on Thursday or Saturday - firstname.lastname@example.org
You certainly do not need to mirror my schedule. Just throwing them out there because I've been asked. Use our Messenging Tool on our website to work up your own dinner/ lunch/ brunch groups - but don't forget to make reservations. Please work our classmate-owned restaurants as you have time & ability to do! Each are very excited to host our classmates! Heartfelt thanks to Greg, John & Damian for their willingness to "play along" with me in planning our reunion weekend!
